Somebody Told Me That You Had A Remix

Back in the Eighties, people actually danced to rock songs in night clubs.

Any single with any semblance of a beat got the remix treatment, and ended up on a 12" club mix record for dancefloor play. Many of those mixes were terrible, really being nothing more than the same tune with a thicker backbeat and some high hat & echo added, and maybe a middle drum part added to extend the song. But some of those mixes were great...

In that same tradition, Island appears to be bringing back the rock/dance-mix my tuning up some tracks by The Killers...there are a couple of remixes of "Somebody Told Me" floating around, and according to about.com's Dance column, more of "Mr. Brightside" on the way.

You can download a free MP3 of the Josh Harris remix of "Somebody Told Me" here.
